* Power crisis worsens in Valley: Sagar
SRINAGAR, Dec 30: National Conference today said that the PDP-BJP Government led by Mehbooba Mufti has been completely paralyzed by rampant corruption and brazen nepotism marked by countless money-for-transfer scams and thousands of backdoor appointments.
Addressing a provincial level meeting of Central leadership and District presidents of the party from Kashmir Province, NC general secretary Ali Mohammed Sagar condemned the apathy shown by the PDP-BJP Government in addressing, pressing and crucial grievances of the people.
“It seems like the State has a Government that exists only on papers. Basic responsibilities of the administration have become luxuries as the Government remains clueless and utterly insensitive to the hardships being faced by the people. The unprecedented, Government-made power crisis is worsening day by day as people in some areas have to spend days if not weeks without electricity. There has been no clarity on power-schedules and the power distribution infrastructure is in shambles. There is an acute shortage of ration and essential commodities have become unaffordable due to a record-high level of inflation which is almost double that of the average national inflation figure. The common man has been cornered in a ruthless and sadistic manner by a Government that remains deaf and blind”, the NC general secretary said.
Wani further asked the party office bearers to remain prepared for any political challenges that may arise and to augment the party’s organizational synergy at all levels.
The provincial level meeting was also attended by senior leaders Ali Muhammad Dar (MLC), Women’s Wing president and MLA Habba Kadal, Shameema Firdous, State spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu, Provincial secretary Showkat Ahmed Mir, YNC Provincial president Salman Ali Sagar, Political secretary to Working president Tanvir Sadiq, Srinagar Parliamentary Constituency Incharge Mushtaq Ahmed Guroo, District president Srinagar Peer Mohammad Afaq, District president Ganderbal and MLA Ishfaq Jabaar and others.
